'''''Comic Cuts''''' was one of Britain's earliest weekly comic papers, published by [[Alfred Harmsworth]], later [[Amalgamated Press]], from 17 May 1890. The early issues contained reprinted cartoons from American magazines, but advertised for artists, and the reprints gave way to original material by artists like [[Roland Hill]], [[Oliver Veal]], [[Tom Browne]] and [[Jack Butler Yeats]]. It absorbed ''[[Golden Penny Comic]]'' (1928), ''[[Jolly Comic]]'' (1939) and ''[[Larks]]'' (1940), and was merged into ''[[Knockout]]'' on 12 September 1953.
